Darren Aronofsky considering Fargo-like sci-fi thriller Moonfall

Darren Aronofsky dipped his toe into sci-fi with the future scenes from his THE FOUNTAIN, but he might be diving head first into the genre for his follow-up to NOAH. The Wrap is reporting the director is interested in a spec-script from David Weil called MOONFALL. Weils wrote the 2013 Black List script HALF HEARD IN THE STILLNESS, and his MOONFALL is being described as a FARGO-esque thriller set on the moon.

However, Darren Aronofsky isn't the only one who is impressed with David Weil's script. The Wrap says Hollywood has been buzzing about his script this week, and several top filmmakers are also considering the project. Although Darren Aronofsky has had conversations about the material, he isn't a lock to direct or produce MOONFALL.

The only project Darren Aronofsky is currently attached to is HBO's MaddAddam Trilogy adaptation, so it's not like he'll be too busy to tackle MOONFALL, however we don't know just how interested he is in directing the film. I would love to see Darren Aronofsky behind the camera for an original sci-fi movie, and I really do hope his next film will be MOONFALL.

Darren Aronofsky's NOAH will be released on Blu-ray and DVD on July 29, 2014.

Aronofsky in space! Oh yes. Sci-fi should only be made by real visionaries anyway, lame attempts can hurt the whole genre.

As long as Aronofsky is making the movies that he wants to make, I will see any of them. He really hasn't let me down with any of his films yet. He falls into that director category, for me, where I will see their movies despite whatever the subject material is. Aronofksky, Boyle, or Scorsese could make a movie about a man and his banana and I would be first in line opening day.

To me, what makes Darren Aronofsky's movies interesting is figuring out what drew him to the material. You can feel his fingerprints on all of his movies, and recognizable themes of obsession and perfection. If he gets this one, then I'll be looking forward to seeing how it fits among his filmography.

I used to be such an Aronofsky fanboy. But then we kinda drifted apart after Black Swan... still haven't seen Noah...

But Fargo in space might be something. That or a pre-historic Raising Arizona... with vampire cavemen.

That sounds just crazy enough it might work.

I haven't seen Noah either, but only because I'm saving it for a real special occasion. I know even some enthusiasts have found it imperfect, but am confident there's enough creativity in there to blow me away.
